Tools from the Past

I was reading a newsletter from the Miami County, KS. Historical Museum. They also had a column called "Tools from the Past: Whatisit?" A couple caught my eye, because they look  like tools we presently use in paper arts. I wondered how many of our craft tools we use today started life in another form?

  1. They look like very sturdy tools.

  2. So cool! Do you have these? I never saw anything like them at all, but most were probably not tools one would have on a farm as that was where I grew up.

    1. I looked at the Brass Armadillo for them (above post), but didn't see any. My hubbin had a seal embosser made to emboss the front page of all the books in his library. If one had a old-fashioned wood or oil cookstove, I would expect the installer would probably have the crimper for the aluminum exhaust piping to vent the fumes outside of the house. It probably depended on who the installer was -- was it a DIY project? Don't know.
